Contrary to the last DARK FORTRESS album Eidolon, Ylem is not strictly a concept album; however, most songs have a common theme - invocations of the death principle from different perspectives. Ylem" is the term for the state of the elements before the Big Bang; in alchemy, it refers to the primordial matter from which all elements were created. The return to a state of Ylem automatically signifies the end of everything that exists now. There is a spark of life in every living cell, but also a seed of entropy and death.

Dark Fortress is a melodic black metal band from Landshut, Germany, formed in 1994. They have released seven studio albums, a split album and a demo album. The band formed in 1994. In 1996 they released the demo Rebirth Of The Dark Age. In 1997 the original line-up, consisting of band founder Asvargr (guitar), vocalist Azathoth, Njord on bass, and drummer Charon established the band's first live line-up with the addition of a second guitarist named Crom and keyboardist Thamuz

Ylem" features 11 tracks. The album kicks off with the title track of the same name. It is quite atmospheric, portraying a grimness that lasts till the end of the song. With the release of their sixth album, Dark Fortress's sound as well as their musical maturity has drastically developed. Ylem" may not be a "must have" album, but it is certainly worth a listen, because certain songs are bound to make a mark on your memory.
